     Comments     : The Lamer Exterminator 1 Virus is a very dangerous
                    virus.  It patches  the BeginIO()-Vector  from the
                    trackdisk.device  to infect other disks. The virus
                    uses the  KICK-Vectors to stay resident. Sometimes
                    the  virus fills  up a  calculated block ($DFF006)
                    with the word "LAMER"
                    No salvage possible
                    The whole Bootblock is crypted
